What is a parked domain and how do I set one up?

Parked domains are domain names that point to your main domain. Your main domain and parked domain share the same web pages. Parked domains do not have separate index pages or folders from your main site. However, they can have their own e-mail addresses.

To set up a parked domain:

Log in to cPanel.

Click on the Parked Domains icon:

You can find this icon in the Domains icon group.

In the “Create a New Parked Domain” form, enter the name of the domain you wish to park (without the www. at the beginning).

Click "Add Domain." A message will be displayed once the domain name has been added.

Please note: Domains must be registered with a valid registrar before they can be parked. In addition, they will not be functional unless they are configured to point to dotCanada's DNS servers.
